What went wrong with Freedom Bay?

Freedom Bay was a high-risk, unregulated investment scheme in a luxury Caribbean eco hotel development in St Lucia.

There was also a Fractional Ownership option to this investment. This meant clients not only invested in the development, but had entitlements to one or more weeks in a luxury apartment or villa. Operating a little bit like timeshare in that they could also exchange these weeks for other resorts or let the hotel rent them out and earn income.

Things did not go to plan and despite being scheduled for completion in 2013, it remained unfinished. The Malgretoute Hotel Development Company who owns the resort went into receivership.

Unsuitable Investment Advice

All investments carry risk but it’s the responsibility of your financial adviser to make sure any investments or pension transfers match your risk profile.

Freedom Bay would not likely have been a suitable investment for the average investor, who would lack the knowledge, experience and capacity for loss that is involved with high-risk investments.


Freedom Bay Mis-sold through SIPPs

Freedom Bay was a high-risk, unregulated scheme which was mis-sold to many people through their Self-Invested Personal Pension  – SIPP.

This is despite the fact that this type of investment is considered unsuitable for the average investor.

Rowanmoor had Freedom Bay in some of its SIPPs. It is now in administration following SIPP client complaints.

Other SIPP pension providers who had this investment in their SIPPs were The Lifetime SIPP Co and Brooklands Trustees.
